You can find me on steam as ZydrateAcademy. There's a few people who use Zydrate as a username so it may take some doin' to find me.
You can also find me on Tumblr:
Don't worry about Tumblr's reputation, my blog is 99% gaming related and little else.
The story sucks but hey, it's more Destiny!
(HG exclusive paragraph: I did not request a whole new slot for this specifically and I have no images to accompany this. So it'll be on this blog. Mercury has an Egyptian aesthetic but it ends there despite Osiris' namesake. Mostly this is just for people who have already been playing Destiny 2.)
You can find my full review of Destiny 2 itself here, but this review will be largely story based, with some tidbits of new armor, weapons, and facts that are introduced. While thereís certainly content to be had, I gotta say; I didnít really like the story. There will be spoilers.
Zydrate is having fun, but is still underwhelmed
Iíve lately not been doing proper Impressions post and instead opting for full blown reviews lately. It has improved my writing skills thanks to some general feedback from a few mates at Honest Gamers. Still, I think Iíll jump back in because my thoughts on Agents of Mayhem are not very complex, though neither is the game.
Zydrate talks Destiny, Origins, Starcraft, and others.
Well itís been a hot minute since Iíve done one of these. Few weeks, really. Destiny 2 was released but Iíve played more than just that since then, even posted a couple of galleries on my characterís level progress. All three are in their 288′s and 289′s (depending on PvE/PvP sets), with my warlock bringing up the rear at 286/287ish. I actually havenít played seriously in few days while watching The Punisher, playing AC: Origins and then The Steam Autumn sale hit so I got a few things there. Let me try to do a lightning round of my recent gaming ventures without getting too rambly.
Zydrate recounts a horrific typhoon in Cities: Skylines.
So I ran into a neat thing literal minutes before Destiny 2′s servers unlocked for PC. I was playing Cities Skylines to kill some time and something fun happened. First Typhoon! And it was incredibly terrifying.
So let me set the story up.
Zydrate talks Shadow of War, Cities: Skylines and Ghost Recon Wildlands.
Gonna talk about a few things here this time, will try to keep some of it brief but you people know how I ramble.
Zydrate talks Shadow of War
Been having moderately nonstop fun on Shadow of War and eventually resolved to buy the expansion pass for the other 40$. I donít mind since Iím really into it, and have yet to buy any boxes outright. I even got 500 gold from some kind of community event (and all I had to do was defeat an Overlord, so I did). With it I bought a box that had some Ologs in it, and I was rewarded with the best guy;
First Impressions of Shadow of War plus a mention of Divinity 2.
I got Shadow of Warís silver edition on a 25% discount, so I have a slight upgrade from the standard for the same 60$. I donít think it includes the expansion pass yet so thatíll have to be something I worry about on a different payday. For now, it was worth the price just a couple hours in.
One of the things I was afraid of is that my previous experience with Shadow of Mordor would make me unkillable, which is what happened. SoM basically has no more replayability because I know how the orcs walk, talk, and how best to stealth kill them all into oblivion. If I canít stealth kill them, then theyíre probably vulnerable to headshots. Only the rare shield user gave me issues (and they continue to do so in War).
